Hard-Doom v8.3.1 - Updated 10/15/18

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

That's definitely fine. I definitely like the new additions of the new pistol zombies and faceless shotgunners.

I understand you. Doom is plenty of shotgun drops, because is one of the most reliable weapons in the game. And i won't ask you to put it back.

I actually liked the shotgun start because, well, you're playing something with "HARD" on the name, and instead of a pistol you started with a shotgun. That surely meant there was some freaky dicky shit going on :p

Keep on the good job, imma downloading v8 now!

I actually plan to make a custom cvar for v8.1. It will be for shotgun starting but default to off. This way people that enjoy the old shotgun starting can do so. :)

Come to think of it, speaking of bestiaries, I'm thinking of writing one for Colourful Hell as well.

Btw, I definitely don't mind the balanced enemy spawns. The chance to find a quad shotty early in a full megawad run can really make some levels easier. (If you don't use those megawads that have some slaughter levels in them, that is)

You don't need to make a custom CVar for it - sv_shotgunstart is already an existing CVar, and it should be used instead (just remember to make an ACS script that removes "Shotgun" and then gives you "Shotgun~"

While we're at it, would it be possible to make a CVar to make SSG Zombies drop said SSG? It'd be really nice.

Ahh right! I didn't think of using ACS to just make the sv_shotgunstart cvar work properly in HD. Also I was discussing a custom cvar for SSG drops from zombies earlier with Ghastly and it is indeed planned for the next release.

Updated to v8.2! Check the main post for links and details.

Edit: Had to removed the coop-mthru CVAR due to desync issues in Zandronum. Current version is now v8.2f!

Can you please release unnerfed monster pack without guns and other items, please? So that it can be used with mods like Guncaster, Wrath of Cronos and many others gameplay mods. Just please give back all the monsters original damage and abilities, like Pyrodemon his famous teleport which made him to be who he is.

I actually PM'd Faerlyn with a request for a "Hard-Doom-Lite", which would be a version with none of the weapons/items for exactly the purpose of mod compatibility - the message was never answered.

Fae also hasn't posted on the forums at all since May 07th, 2018 (the "Updated to version 8.3!" post).

I plan to do a "Lite" version eventually. I just haven't yet due to loosing interest in Doom.

Edit: Added a "Lite" version to the main post. Figured it was easy enough to just make today quickly. 8-)

Updated to version 8.3.1! This release also includes an updated Lite version. Nothing major (unless you like fast monsters?) just some small fixes to things that were bugging me.
